Granola


This recipe was so good, we ate half the batch for breakfast the first morning.  I highly recommend doubling!

4 cups rolled oats, uncooked
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/2 - 1 cup nuts, chopped (Use whatever is in your cabinet. This batch included hazelnuts, almonds, pecans and peanuts)
1/4 cup honey, warmed to liquid
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup dried fruit (I used raisins)


Preheat oven to 325. In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. In a glass measuring cup, warm honey until it is no longer viscous. Add oil and butter and stir.

Drizzle the honey mixture over the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Evenly spread the mixture on a large baking sheet. Bake until golden and crunchy, 20-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.

Breakfast for Mark today: Granola plus homemade yogurt

A hint to streamline the process that I forgot to mention: measure the honey in a microwave-safe one-cup (at least) measuring cup. Add olive oil (to make one cup liquid total) then add butter. Put in microwave on medium high until butter starts to melt (won't take long). Stir until butter is fully melted then pour on oat mixture right away before honey and oil start to separate. Hope that makes sense!
